Going old school when it comes to shaving

I bought this shave brush in Italy ;-)

My club member application has been approved

Let's hope the department of home affairs won't drag their heels in letting me go

Great food tour in Bologna

Today we have been on a great food tour in the Bologna area. We have seen how the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Aceto balsamico tradizionale di Modena is made and we have been to a local vineyard for a great lunch. Thanks to Alessandro for all the information – see http://www.italiandays.it for more info – and by the way, we also used the opportunity to buy some stuff Winking smile

Enjoying an aperitivo in Bologna

A bright orange spritz

We got reminded about an Italian word today

Panna means whipped cream of course. Not exactly what Nikki had in mind :-)

Looking for perfect espresso cups

And at a restaurant in Bologna they used cups from Figgjo, a town located about 20 minutes outside Stavanger. How ironic is that ;-)
